quote of the day

"Right now, the Democratic advantage is an consequence more of Republican failures than Democratic gains; though Democrats are favored by six points in a "generic congressional ballot" question, ratings of both the Democrats and Republicans are at their lowest points in the last half-century. In order to break out of this decline, Greenberg and Carville propose a bold move: "To become the agent of change in the year ahead, the Democrats will have to be reformist, populist and nationalist, armed with new ideas for renewing the country." Indeed, our poll found that when Democrats present voters with a real choice, drive home their critique, and offer a new direction, a clear majority of Americans, including many who have abandoned the Democratic party over the last decade, are ready to vote blue.

Without taking these steps, Democrats will likely still maintain their current advantage and make gains in 2006. But this election holds the potential for historic gains, not just incremental progress."

-- Stan Greenberg and James Carville, from from their latest Polling report
